"It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Monday, Apr. 18th  – Washington, DC - Rep. Jared Polis (CO-02), released the following statement today regarding the rally to support DAPA and DACA+ programs at the Supreme Court. US v Texas will determine the fate of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA+) programs.  "US v Texas is an important case for American and Colorado families. I'm attending a rally at the Supreme Court to support DAPA & DACA+ programs that allows parents of American children to work legally because it's a commonsense approach," said Polis. "President Obama has the authority to focus the Department of Homeland Security's limited resources on the removal of serious criminals over the parents of American kids and "dreamers" who grew up here and know no other country. DAPA and DACA+ makes Americans safer, keeps families together, and is consistent with actions taken by Democratic and Republican Presidents

Jared Polis (D-CO) released the following statement today following the House Judiciary Committee’s announcement that the committee will markup the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 699) on April 13th.

Polis Solar EDGE to Boost Expansion and Venture in American Solar Industry
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In an effort to continue his push to incentivize clean energy and job growth, Representative Jared Polis (D-CO) introduced the Solar Expansion Distributed Generation Exponentially (EDGE) Act. The bill will promote investment in small scale distributed generation solar projects, especially residential installation, across the U.S., and encourage long-term job growth in the solar industry. “Investing in clean energy technology has been a top priority of mine and many Coloradans,” said Polis. “We’ve been fortunate to develop and implement innovative policies that support solar-friendly regulations and projects in our state, but many areas across the U.S. are restricted from large scale projects that require expensive transmission infrastructure. The Solar EDGE Act will be a boost for the American solar industry, revamp America’s leadership in a technology we created, and promote a lift in clean energy investment. ” "Clean energy champions like Rep.
